This follows the recent Ed Nash solo tracks Say Anything, When and Think You Feel The Same.

If the, shall we say overtly sombre nature of Gary Jules’ number one Mad World cover feels much more appropriate for 2020 than it did for 2003, then Ed Nash’s much more elusive version should at least get close to this year’s end of term mood.

The Bombay Bicycle Club member has teamed up with Liz Lawrence for this cover, with proceeds going towards Samaritans via his Bandcamp page.

“Me and good pal Liz Lawrence have recorded a cover of our favourite Christmas number one Mad World…actually the only Christmas number one it seemed fitting to cover after the year that we’ve all been through,” Nash says.

“We’ve made the song a pay-what-you-want download on my Bandcamp and we’ve included a donation link on Spotify, with all the proceeds going to the Samaritans, a charity that provides emotional support to anyone struggling to cope. It’s been a hard year for everyone and this organisation seems more vital now than ever.”

“Hoping that everyone is staying safe and happy, whatever your situation this festive season. More to come in the new year but until then I hope this can bring even a tiny bit of joy.”
